What is with the hype on this brand?
I personally think they're poorly lacking in features and expensive purely for the sake of the unibody extruded chassis.
>>
>>45288995
Yes, let's hope so. The heatpipes do allow you a bit of flexibility in the positioning of the socket. The bigger problem seems to be clearance between the socket and the top of the motherboard. Some of the fancy motherboards are putting all kinds of caps and heatsinks up there.

>>45289055
From what I've seen in the manual, the heat pipes are not soldered in place. You just need an assload of thermal compound to get good conductivity between the pipes and the chassis.

The temperatures aren't going to be great, but it should be more than enough to keep the system stable for what I need. In part, this is an experiment to try building a system with literally no moving parts.

for the amount of money you spent you could have gone full loop

>>45289145
Yeah, no thanks. I saved money when compared to going full loop, and since I am constantly swapping in new components (I love upgrading my GPU) I don't feel like going watercooled with a custom loop.

Sorry, I took convenience of AIO's over custom looping.

And who gives a fuck about how it looks inside when the whole point of this build was performance per dollar?

Seriously, go get a Mac if looks are that important you pleb.

No, it really doesn't. Spend the extra dosh on binned components, by all means, but don't think it's a bragging point.

I spent a long time researching for this build. Everyone is so up in arms against AMD because muh single-thread performance and hyperthreading shit, but when you throw AMD a properly multi-threaded application like Premiere Pro, that FX-9590 blows right up out of the water. Sure it is a power beast and it's TDP is hilarious, but when I got it for $200, I was the one left laughing.

Also, if you know how to lay out your airflow in a case, and you have proper fans (Noctua's and Rosewill Hyperboreas on my 240mm radiator in pull), you keep temps stupid low.

I'm honestly tired of the baseless AMD hate. Ironically, I was originally doing a Xeon build but I was going to have to skimp on the GPU to keep it under $2G's. But this PC is fucking killer for the price of the entire build.

Did I mention that I bought two SSD's and all the HDD's with the cash left over so I even solved my storage conundrum?

It fits all my main points when looking for a case
>no windows
>great airflow

The two 200mm fans & two 140mm fans, leds, fan controllers AND temperature display + meters that come with it all for ~$70 still make this the best value case I ever bought, I don't know how NZXT pulled off that price. The only con I can find in 4+ years is that it isn't very wide and tall CPU coolers don't fit without removing the side fan.

And it looks really good as well, although I can see why people don't like the shape.
